Funeral officiants, also called Celebrants, lead funeral services, saying prayers and delivering eulogies. Often, the funeral directors themselves act as officiants, while chosen clergy lead the service in religious funerals. You can also hire funeral officiants separately to help design and lead the best funeral for your loved one.
In general, these officiants can be divided into two main categories: 1.) Those who are religiously oriented such as rabbis and pastors, and 2.) Non-denominational or secular officiants, also called celebrants or life-cycle celebrants
